We spent the day getting the new invertor generator connected to the essentials in the house. I am happy to say it worked wonderfully, and by the end of the day - miraculously! - Nova Scotia Power had our electricity restored. Yay! It took another day to get internet but we are far from complaining, as most of our town and province are still without power, and will be for several days yet.
This huge picturesque church stands at the centre of the village. We understand that crews are working now to safely remove the steeple.
If you look closely at the below Victoria Street scene, you can just make out a car buried under this tree.
